Summary

Elizabeth's sister Saoirse is a red-haired whirlwind, always leaving behind pieces that Elizabeth struggles to pick up. One of those pieces is Saoirse's six-year-old son, Luke, a quiet, contemplative boy. When Luke is playing in Elizabeth's garden one day, and witnessing the latest scene between his mother and his aunt, a friend named Ivan walks into his life. This unexpected and rather mysterious friend will change Luke - but will have an even greater impact on Elizabeth. Always capable and self-contained, Elizabeth finds Ivan creeping under her skin and beginning to change her life in ways she could never have imagined. With all the warmth and poignancy fans have come to expect from Cecelia Ahern, this is a magical novel, and a surprising love story.

An Adult fairy tale

If you were sorry when you grew up that magic stories came to an end, then read this.... You may begin to believe again.
Magical, would make a good and very funny film, but don't spoil it!

Easy listening

A sweet story but lacking in humour and some of the narration was week. Not a favourite but worth a listen for an easy read.

GYM BUDDY

I’m now working my way through all Cecelia Ahern’s books, and they are the best gym buddies a girl can have!

I’ve read this book a few years ago, but it came to live in this audiobook! At times I was laughing and other times I was close to tears, but most of the time I looked like an idiot with my goofy grin!

Ivan is by far my favorite!
